[chuck-users] Neural Nets in ChucK

For some reason I missed this, likely this is because of my current flu and
light fever... Oops.

That looks very interesting indeed! You'll have to excuse me for being a
little sceptical about applying neural networks to arbitrary problems
because they are notoriously hard to optimise (in width, depth and method of
interconnection, etc) and defining the feedback loop for machine-learning is
non-trivial... But this looks like a fine issue to approach in a very naive
and outgoing way.

I should probably explain here that a long time ago (a decade or so) I used
to study artificial intelligence, at least until I dropped out. Back then
neural networks seemed like something magical in the future (of our
studies), then again, so seemed OOP and ChucK made that look easy as well so
I say; "go!".
